One of my newly graduated students took his own life this morning, no details but there was obviously major things going on in his life that we weren't aware of. He was not seen as being at risk by anyone. So sad.

I'm guessing he was in his late teens then? What a terrible thing that one so young could see no way past whatever was troubling him. My sympathies to all who knew him.

Returning here for another feline heartbreak :-(
One of our younger cats / daughter of the one we lost in January developed a limp and seemed unwell. Her right front leg wasn't working properly. After an x-ray the vet thinks is a tumour in the spine. We've been given some painkillers and some steroid tablets, but other than that the only option is a bl**dy expensive (vet's word, not mine) cat scan followed by chemo if they can tell what kind of cancer it is. Except that the scan might not be conclusive and there's a waiting list, so given the speed that this has developed with there's probably not really any point in going through with it.

The steroids have (temporarily) reversed the limp and she seems quite back to normal, but the vet has asked for daily reports so we're preparing for the worst.

It's so hard to lose a beloved pet.

Yes, one of my local friends has had to have her Samoyed dog put to sleep today, he (the dog) was around 10, 11 years old I think and I saw a FB post this morning about it being the hips that failed, and he couldn't stand up any more.

It's a bit harder right now because we are back in lockdown for a few days and the friend has plenty of support from the FB comments, but we can't have visitors.

I'm going to a friend's birthday party tomorrow and once again I fear it's the last time I'll get to cuddle their ancient Belgian shepherd. That's the sucky thing about companion animals, having to say good bye so early and so often.

A re-enacting friend has succumbed to the cancer he was diagnosed with last year. Not that old (40s) and leaves behind a wife and young(ish) son.

Despite being in lockdown and church services online, there was a hurried email this morning from the office advising us of a fire in the op shop overnight. (not on the church premises)

Last year there was discussion over whether the shop would close due to others from larger charity chains in the shopping strip, and forced closure due to lockdowns.

The local railway station is also being rebuilt as part of the level crossing removal project, it is not yet known if the fire was accidental/electrical fault etc or deliberate (there are a few homeless in the area who use the church's food program, with more shops closing down there are more empty places)

Why would anyone deliberately set a place on fire where they know they can get something to eat?

I fear it may be the non-homeless, trying to keep the needy away....
